We’re Here for You, for Life
Our Medically Supervised Weight Management program is evidence-based and designed to help physicians treat patients with metabolic syndrome by maximizing fat loss while preserving muscle. We focus not just on one disorder, but the cause, along with the multitude of symptoms and problems that could stem from a hormone imbalance or from diabetes. Available only through physicians, our program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association as one of the elite programs meeting the national standards for diabetes self-management education.

We are a team
- Support and guidance from your physician

- Reduction in hunger and cravings while maintaining energy levels
- Proven, safe, and sensible lifestyle approach for long-term results
How does it work?
To get started, the physician you meet with will perform a simple, painless diagnostic test using a handheld device to determine your metabolic requirements and body composition. Your test results and medical history will be used to create a flexible, customized diet and exercise program tailored specifically to your goals and desires. A weight management coach in your physician’s office will review the plan with you and meet with you regularly for support, feedback and behavioral education. Your coach will periodically re-test your body composition and metabolic rate to help you track your fat loss and adjust your plan as needed.
How much can I expect to lose?
With a properly managed diet and exercise program most people can expect to lose 1-2 lbs of fat or more per week. Although it is difficult to predict how much weight you will lose, the goal of this program is to maximize fat loss and preserve lean body mass. We work closely with you to make sure the weight you are losing is, in fact, fat and that you are maintaining optimal health and energy levels throughout the program.
Will I be hungry?
Our high-protein meal replacement formula and nutritional supplements are designed to specifically help decrease hunger cravings while maximizing fat loss. Combined with a balanced meal plan, most people find the program satisfying and easy to follow.
What makes this program different?
It’s safe, easy, and scientifically sound. This program is designed and managed by physicians, and is nationally recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Our weight management program will ensure you’re doing what’s best for your health and well-being. The program uses state-of-the-art, proven technology to track and monitor your progress. You will also receive useful and motivational feedback.
